another near miss in Nearby City

I’ve previously mentioned that we live fairly close to Nearby City, a town known for its… umm… fragrance. The Family had a birthday party to attend in Nearby City this past weekend, and let us just say that it lived up to its reputation.

As we drove through an industrial area, I commented on how the odor was particularly bad that day. Alice, however, disagreed.

“It smells good to me! It smells like a good, wobbley egg!” **

That’s my girl. Always the optimist.


** Alice calls egg whites “wobbley eggs.” Because they wobble. It makes me giggle. I am giggling right now.

  1. Oh dear. Looks like Alice is destined to be a supermodel or famous actress. All they eat are egg whites. Alice has started so early – and willingly. Next you’ll be telling me that she eats all her brussels sprouts, hates chocolate and candy, and enjoys cleaning the toilet.

    • Good god, no. I would be pretty disappointed if Alice were a super model. Well, maybe not, as long as it made her happy and she knew she was worth one helluva lot more than her exterior. She’s got her head screwed on pretty straight so far… but not straight enough to eat brussels sprouts… I’m working on it.

whaddaya have to say for yourself?
